Default Ostc Pics Or Info

A group of us are trying to decide if we are going to go up for the weekend, but every pic that I have seen looks pretty basic and easy. I was wondering if anyone had some pics of the harder sections or any info on the trail ratings.

Thanks

There's plenty of pics & some videos here.

If you're coming from the western U.P, I'd have to say it may not be worth your trip. Where are you coming from?

There are a couple hills that are balls out horsepower climbs. In June, out of about 80 rigs, only 8-10 werwe capable of making one of them. The rocks are fun to play on and were challenging rigs & buggies that had 39+ tires. The problem is that there aren't enough of them yet. The owner is adding more rocks over time. The more participation we give him, the more incentive he has to keep adding to the obstacles.

My jeep is in Benton Harbor right now and I will be coming from Chicago. How about the state trails? Is there anything very interesting there or just forest roads?

Just forest roads. OSTC is the most challenging legal area I know of in the lower peninsula.

I'm not here to get into a "who's the best" debate so I will rephrase;

I have yet to see any pics of any better balls out, steep, off camber sandy hill climbs that are currently legal in the lower peninsula. There are several places around the state that are working on man-made rock obstacles that look challenging.

How's that?
